Unfortunately as Karlcr9911 said, there are a lot of moving parts to getting HOV implemented. Hopefully it will be sooner than Waze Soon, but we just have to wait and see.


Is it possible for Waze to maintain accurate speed data when an HOV lane isn't a separate road, but rather just an additional lane on a freeway?

How recent does it need to be, and how long a trip? Would 5 minutes spent in the HOT lane two weeks ago be worth submitting? (Exact times are easily identified on toll statements.)

I notice that all HOV restrictions have been removed from WME. I assume this means Waze is abandoning the HOV project.
First I learned how to draw lines on a map. Now I must learn the art of Feng-ShWaze.

I don't understand how. If they took anything that mentioned HOV off the map that would indicate they're moving away from it, not towards it.
https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/HOV
This page is now null and void since they've removed HOV-2 and HOV-3 from the time based restrictions.

The state I live in is spending billions on HOV lanes. It's probably what 3 our of 4 road dollars is spent on. Yet Waze continues to flounder on giving us anything close to it.

I would look at this from the other side. It means it is closer to be added.

I assume maybe it's due to development reasons. Initially wanted to implement it one way and now have a different thought.
The wiki is a pure community product, so it isn't indicating anything.

Any news on the HOV feature? Waze is practically useless in Boston without it. Not knowing about HOV lanes can double the commute time.

There are other parts that need to be solved. Some HOVs are completely separate roads and sometimes they are part of the existing road. Waze needs to determine speed on both and with the roads so close together the speeds bleed over.
Also, some HOV are 3+, sometimes they are tolled HOV, sometimes the HOV may only be active during certain times.
